Memory Mouse concept needs work

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on March 7th, 2008

Memory Mouse concept
Looking somewhat like a urinal cake, the Memory Mouse doesn’t look like it would be very comfortable to hold. And looking like a urinal cake, why would you want to? The interesting thing about this concept device is that it has 4GB or 8GB of built-in memory and a touch scroll wheel.

So, it would make up for it’s lack of style by freeing up an additional USB port for other devices, but it isn’t wireless. The touch scroll wheel might be a good idea, but I’m not convinced. The notches on a standard scroll wheel are important, especially in gaming. But really, using this device as it is above, would be like playing Air-Hockey without the Hockey.

MacBook Air-like mouse device from Donya

Donya DN-SlimG4
There are all kinds of wacky mice out there, and I ain’t talking wacky cartoon mice. Most are not particularly innovative, but the Donya DN-SlimG4 has something new to offer. It looks like a Razor-esque cell phone, and folds up into a neat little square package.

USB vacuum mouse for neat freaks

USB vacuum mouse for neat freaks
Someone had to do it eventually. The question is why? Because they can, is enough of a reason apparently. They took a simple 800dpi laser mouse with scroll wheel and combined it with a miniature vacuum cleaner. It’s got a power switch on the side for turning the vacuum function on and off. Problem is this mouse needs to be connected to a USB port in order to get enough power to run the motor.

The dust reservoir can be accessed in the back-end of the mouse, but being so small, you would probably need to empty it very often. If you are a real clean freak, this is the mouse for you. You’ll be able to clean your mousepad as you click.

“Wow-Pen Joy” ergonomic mouse on the way

“Wow-Pen Joy” ergonomic mouse on the way
The name “Wow-Pen Joy” doesn’t exactly inspire much confidence in this new fangled mouse. My first impression is that it looks an awful lot like you are giving your desk an ultrasound. I’d be curious to know if it finds anything. Hope they used enough lube. This device is set to be released in North American and Sweden sometime next month, by a Korean company called WOW Technology.

I can almost be sold on the fact that the shape of this thing could provide for a more natural way of using a mouse, but then I figure that over time it would probably just cripple NEW areas of your wrist. For $30, it won’t break the bank for you to find out.

Evergreen’s gamepad & computer mouse in one

Gamepad & computer mouse in one
This gamepad mouse from Evergreen might be the coolest mouse we’ve seen yet. It’s called The Genius Navigator and hidden inside, you will find a gamepad featuring six buttons, plus Turbo and Clear buttons, and a directional pad.

The 1600/800dpi USB laser mouse weighs 67 grams and is compatible with Windows Vista, XP and 2000. The Genius Navigator will cost you about about $33 USD. I suspect that both the gamepad and mouse don’t work all that well together, but like Peanut butter and chocolate, I do think it’s awesome that they put them together. I’d like to see them take it one step further and put a Nintendo DS in a mouse. That I would buy. Who am I kidding? I would buy this one, too.

Microsoft brings Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 and 6000

Posted in Mouse by Darrin Olson on February 5th, 2008

Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 with charging cradleMicrosoft today launched the Wireless Laser Mouse 7000 and the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000. Both models feature a little bit less rounded look than other recent accessories from Microsoft and use a 30-foot, 2.4GHz wireless connection.

The rechargeable 7000 model is geared more for desktop use with a new horizontal charging cradle that makes it look somewhat like to a sleek snail when docked. It will charge up a single rechargeable AAA battery which gives it up to 3 weeks of use on a single charge. The 7000 has a responsiveness of 1,000 dots per inch and precision of 6,000 frames per second along with 4-way scrolling, Flip-3D and the single-click magnifying tool to zoom in on…well, whatever it is you want to zoom in on. A green indicator light shows the battery level for charging.

Jellyclick inflatable computer mouse

inflatable computer mouse
We’ve covered our share of mice here at the Brick, but this is perhaps the strangest. As far as mice go, it’s the ultimate in portability. That’s because it’s inflatable. You store it flat and blow it up. Some of you might be familiar with this concept in your women.

It can store flat because all of the electronic circuity is housed on a small flexible board. The body itself is soft plastic. When you need your mouse, just blow it up and attach the USB cable and you’re ready. It might even be the difference between life and death in a hairy water situation. They probably should have went the whole nine yards and included a breathalyzer too since this design obviously required a whole lotta booze to come up with it.

A USB/PS2 keyboard & mouse to your PS3
XFPS has created a nifty little gadget that allows you to connect a USB or PS2 keyboard and mouse to your Playstation 3. The question is, will it be PlayStation 3 authorized only, or are we finally going to be able to use any keyboard and mouse on those integrated USB ports as long as the game supports it?

A company representative said that you will be able to play games such as Unreal Tournament 2007 with the keyboard and the mouse, which might mean the end of auto-aiming that is now have on Playstation 2. More details are sure to come. We will try to get more info on this one for you.

CES 2008

IceRage designer Pocket Mouse

IceRage Pocket Mouse in designer colors and slim design for portable useAccording to IceRage a mouse is hardly just a user input device for you computer, but is also a fashion statement. Because of this the company is debuting two of its new mouse models at CES – the Pocket Mouse and the Ultimate Pocket Mouse – both of which are available this month.

The pocket mouse appears to almost ignore ergonomics in favor of a fashion model-like slender design that comes in colors of blue, pink, green, silver, white and of course the oh-so-slimming black. The Pocket Mouse works well for use with a notebook on the go and comes as either a USB wired (with a retractable cord) for $60 or can be wireless via Bluetooth for another $10. It features 800 dpi tracking, a complete lack of affinity for either hand over the other and is compatible with a PC or Mac.

Deluo MouseGPSPeanut butter and jelly. Black and white. GPS and mouse. That’s right – someone has gone ahead and paired GPS technology with a computer rodent. Hold onto your wallets and read about the questionable new gadget known as the Deluo MouseGPS, priced at around $100.

The Deluo MouseGPS, which we first covered earlier this month, is quite simply a USB mouse with a retractable USB cord and optical scrolling. The quirky part becomes apparent when you flip the switch and it becomes a GPS receiver which “tracks 16 parallel satellite channels for ease of use in even densely urban or rural areas.” It pairs with Microsoft software such as Streets & Trips to help you navigate around town.

Wow Pen Traveler is a more ergonomic mouse with laser pointer, Bluetooth and memoryWOW TECH has a newer version of their ergonomically designed Wow-Pen mouse coming to the U.S. later this month called the Wow-Pen Traveler.

Both components of the ergonomic desktop connect through 2.4 GHz RF-wireless connections with a USB receiver. The keyboard keys has a winged design which according to Microsoft will give your hands a more natural position while typing, and the mouse fits your hand “as naturally as a handshake”.

The mouse has a number of nice features including 4-way scrolling, an instant viewer to navigate between open windows (Alt-Tab too tough?), a magnifier to catch that small print and a both pieces have a battery life …
